Still plenty for kids despite the SUNfest program finishing

SUNFEST'S finale was on last night, ending the two-week school holiday program, but parents aren't to fear; school holiday programs will continue up until school starts again.

This weekend for some family fun, head out to the markets.

The Miriam Vale Lions Markets in the Park is on today from 7am-noon.

Sunday brings both the Discovery Coast Markets from 6am-2pm with arts and crafts, a variety of fresh produce and many other items available.

And the Cedar Galleries Farmers Markets from 6am-2pm to enjoy beautiful market stalls while the kids play on the rides, jumping castles and alpacas.

If markets aren't for you, then head out to Harmony Farm at Ubobo to give horseriding a go.

Or for those artsy crafty people check out the Bunnings DIY back-to-school workshop from 10am-noon on Saturday and Sunday; don't forget to book your place because spots are limited.

There's lots on next week: Stockland has a Grassy Heads Workshop, PCYC is having more fun days, and the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery and Museum has a creepy cutlery workshop.
